Who owned the cup? Lydia

Who had discarded the tea cup? The beautiful ornate and gilded object reflected the sunlight like a bolt of lightning. It had been there some time. Lush green grass was growing inside it as if the grass had replaced the half drunk tea instantly as it fell to the ground and spilled.As I got closer to it, the gigantic cup towered over me. Then I realised that it had been abandoned in a hurry and was waiting in vain to be reclaimed by the even bigger creature that had once drunk from it in a time when giants roamed the land.
